Located in a great location to see the city, The hostel is enticing to stay at.
Offering free walking tours around the city and surrounding caves, options for going out at night as well makes it very easy to see everything in the city.
The "free" walking tour was a great experience and the guide brought us around parts of the city we would never see on our own. We tipped him 25 Euro at the end of the 2 hour walking tour for our group of 6. We thought it was generous, but we also enjoyed the tour.
The next day we went on a different free walking tour with the same guide who started informing us how a normal tip is around 5 Euros each. So we tipped him a bit more because we felt we didnt the first time. It was clear this time that this was not a "free" tour but a way for an employee to make excess money.
2 Euro towel rental
"Night Out" - 12 Euros with an advertised open bar for 1 hour before going to a few different bars and clubs where we would get free entrance and "lots of shots" In reality our open bar was limited and cut short. The "guide" got very drunk and we walked from free bar to free bar where entrance fees were not even required. We got a few shots before we went home because there was nothing else to do.
At the time of the stay it was all a great experience, but after we realized that all the things we did we paid a bit too much for. The workers were very nice, but we were clients of their game to earn money and party at the same time. It seemed like we went out to amuse them rather than be shown around the city.
It was a great experience at the time, but looking back was superficial since we essentially paid for friends.
